Just dont cut it.

Characters = Blows... Koinzel? wtf I wish someone just killed him already...The rest of the crew aint that nothin to give a f*** about either -_-
Plot = Blow/Decent. some twist n turns that are good enough I guess
Art = Decent, clear n clean. Nothin spectacular but still good. Little too plain tho.

Wouldnt give this higher then a 5, havnt gone thru it all yet but got a feelin nothing will ever change in the story nor the characters. Anyways gona leave out my rating until some more volumes, Im pretty much forcing me thru this crap.

Anyways if your the kind that like somekind of wierd action with plain Characters/Plot/Fights... This is good enough for you I guess bigrazz

Conclusion with 1 word would be "Shallow"

I really like this manga. I'm giving it an 8.5. I really like where it's going in revenge. I don't like it on how people compare mangas. I also see those of you who rated this manga really low when you only read like what, 5 chapters. I mean come on this is only the first volume and you hate it. Give it time and then give a real review. I just finished the second volume and I like where this manga is going.

Agree with Tokkun and lilbro. Of course it's a matter of tastes, but well, this manga is predictable and somehow childish. The art is ok but has nothing new to it, the plot is very simple so far and the characters are pretty stereotypical. Anyhoe, i'll give it some time before dropping it...

Even if it doesn't give me that feeling of "I will be something special" I do not judge it harshly because I just read the opening and the first Volume so I do not read much to judge.

There is some poster in here that says that this manga is a copy of Berserk and that it doesn't worth the 9s and 10s people gave it. I say he can't even understand a storyline difference even if it hits him on the head. To say this manga is even close to Berserk is probably one of the .. ummmm silliest ,cause I can;t say anything else, things I ever heard. Berzerk has tons or gore and splatter and it gives you a heavy aura that feels like pulling you down. Ubel Blatt is more light and its drawings can a calmer feeling and they are unable to give you the same feelings or even close to that Berzerk does. Also I will not comment the difference of the "explicit violence and sexual scenes" as he said they contain because Ubel just gives me the feeling its an anime with a boy cutting off people and letting them die and being a bit naughty while Gutts cuts thousands of monsters and enemies to pieces covering himself with blood.
[edit by mod, Warning: Berserk related spoiler]
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Also Gutts fights first because he wants revenge from the man he thought friend, second to protect the girl he loves and third to prevent his "fate" which means him dying while
(if you haven't read the Volume 0 then this is a spoiler but its not major but still a spoiler)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the boy hero here just wants to take revenge on the people that killed him and decided to call themselves the "7 heroes"
Finally I want to say that just because both use the same sources to create the manga it doesn't mean they are the same. If its like that then Ares, Claymore, Berserk, Lodoss Wars, this one and who knows how many other manga are the same so lets give all except Berserk a 5 and ignore them.

This manga has a very good storyline, actually much better than I expected and I am glad that while I was visiting KMT I decided to check what their releases are. Its very easy to read and their drawings are pretty clear unlike Berserk and that makes it even more light. It seems pretty fast paced but it doesn't seem in fast forward like some that make you feel a year passed just by reading a chapter.

Pretty good job and I recommend it. At least read Volume 0 and after that decide. Well sadly its pretty early since it has been translated up to the middle or a bit further of Volume 2 but I am hoping it will change its slow release pace not of the translations but the actual releases. Almost 4 years for only 6 releases isn;t the best thing. I guess it will be slow like Berserk so they will be 2 of my manga that I will love and wait a whole life to see the ending ^^;

Hehe Finally the second volume was translated! I can't be more happy. I am already reading it and I am happy to see whats going on next. Well not much to add it still cool and the story progress slowly as always.

Also I wanted to comment on the ***** people that instead of putting here a decent rating they argue and i am talking both about the ones that accuse haters and the ones that accuse lovers. If you do not like it just post why you do not like it and believe it worths below 0. If you love it just put a 10 and write with joy why you did that too. For the ******** that comment on the comments and likes or dislikes of other people. Ger a life.

Pretty good, fairly enjoyable, and a good read. Not the best manga I have ever read, but certainly not the worst.

It`s interesting and cute in a way. It`s true the idea isn`t original and all but the image of a new good formed shounen type manga is more than enough to ignore a little things that were said already. Kaintzel can complete with any of the popular characters! What give a little bad to the story is side chars coming with every new chapter and the form that is being designed - anti-hero with his friends going to save the world(that`s the feeling that i get so far).
You think just like Berserk, but it`s not so mature style and there`s not so much space around the the story line
A good story with great potential! 8.5/10

At first you will think that he's unbeatable with his swords but when you read more of this you will soon find out that he's vulnerable and not the fu**ing superman he seems to be :]
Enjoy it!

I don't get why everyone is comparing Beserk to Ubel Blatt. Nearly every series has some connections to another manga, either by influencing another, or being influenced. Take for example, 666Satan w/ Naruto: Funny characters, major timeskip, kaballah/demon-abosrbing thingy.... (granted the authors are twin brothers)
Overall the characters are coming along nicely, though i think that v0 might've been better off not revealing Koinzell's true identity & purpose (though you can already guess why even only reading like, the first chapter~)

My only question/complaint is that i can only find v0 and the first 6 chaps of v1. Normally, i'd wait for the next scanlations to come out, but i heard that the scanlators (sushi counter?) isn't active anymore. Even if it was, I don't know where to read it... TT_TT

Sure, Berserk is a good manga but that's not a reason to compare each and every fantasy action stuff with the MIURA Kentaro work (reminds of people who compare each and every mecha anime with Evangelion, although a fan of E. myself I find such behaviour foolish).

There's already lot's of good stuff said about that manga, so I won't bother adding praise for this work (for now)... It just 'clicks' with me, a picky old bastard who read a lot of different mangas of various genres and art styles.

You may like Übel Blatt for what it is or you may not, but it's surely not a copy or rip-off of something, so please no B vs UB flame wars.

P.S. Let me dispel some misunderstandings that irk me:
*Ugly enemies - blatant lie: see v0c2, the lady with a harem of young boys. Most men (even evil guys) aren't ugly ether, there's a couple of old farts and ultrabuff freaks but that's it.
*Sex (rape) and gore -- neither are really graphic, violence is mostly your standard mature fantasy manga level, as I've seen a lot of grotesque and unpleasant stuff in Seinen\Historical manga I hope you'll take my word on this one. Plus there's only one brief 'rape' scene so far, per n sex scenes.
